the ntsb is now starting to look at exactly the air worthiness issues, what was behind it, they've got investigation teams that are on their way to boston. and they're going to be asking the tough questions, wolf. they're going to want to know why brand-new aircraft, seemingly have recurring problems, albeit, of a different nature. are these the little glitches that boeing says they are, that happen with all new major complicated planes, or is there something else that's happening? there are lots of rumors, wolf, about whether the wiring has been done properly, whether this has been done properly or the other. so that's the issue at the moment. >> i assume, richard, there's been a backlash already, from the airlines that have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to purchase these dreamliners from boeing? >> yes. and the serious part about that is the airlines are used to glitches. so it's not like you or me, the airlines expect a certain amount of headache, toothache, pain and misery with a new plane, a new model. but they don't expect it to be of this level. aog is the phrase they us
airliners. well, boeing says it is working with ntsb investigators, looking into monday's fire on a japan airlines 787 at boston's logan airport. the fire involved the batteries in the belly of the plane used to power the aircraft while on the ground. and in a statement, boeing adds, "nothing that we've seen in this case indicates a relationship with any previous 787 power system events." as for the second japan airlines dreamliner that was spewing fuel at logan airport yesterday, it was a pilot from another plane that alerted the control tower that the 787 was losing fuel. and then the control tower notified the unsuspecting j.a.l. pilot. the ntsb says it's not looking into the fuel leak which j.a.l. officials are deeming a mechanical problem. and boston airport officials say there was no leak in the fuel tank, but the plane was venting fuel, which is the aircraft's way to dump excess fuel. but it's not usually seen on the runway. so after four hours, the dreamliner was checked out and cleared to fly. now, the japanese government told cnn they have asked airlines to inspect planes for ba

of them seemingly quite serious, like the fuel leak, will be giving cause for concern. that's why the ntsb here in the united states is looking at worthiness, at what happened, and is certainly not going to be taking this very lightly. these were two serious incidents that happened. >> and what is so special, what is so revolutionary about these planes? >> the way it is built. no aluminum, carbon fibers, composite, the plane is lighter. it has new engines. it has bigger windows. it has new avionics, everything about what the plane is made from and the way it is made. boeing has subcontracted large parts of the manufacturer to different companies, particularly japan and elsewhere. the parts are flown into the united states where they're assembled in the carolinas and out in washington state. so the totality of the plane is a revolution for boeing, in how it is made, what it is made, and that's why perhaps there are these problems. but, here is the important thing to bear in mind, would i get on a dreamliner tonight? across the ocean, yes. no question about it. >> i was going to ask you, you
